St-Paul’s Chapel is actually right behind where the Twin Towers stood before 9/11. It is quite impressive how apparently this church stood its ground and wasn’t damaged at all during the attacks and the falling buildings. Apparently on September 12th, the day after the attacks...More

Not only did this chapel a devastating fire centuries ago, it also was undamaged during the 9/11 attacks. Inspirational to walk through this building of quiet and peace in the midst of a noisy and always busy city.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
